2013 Limited Edition Cuban Cigars - Grand Epicure, Serie d'Oro No. 2 & Epicure de Luxe.
Unveiled at the 2013 Habanos Festival in February, the Hoyo de Monterrey Grand Epicure comes in a Slide Lid Box of ten Cigars. This is quite an interesting Limited Edition release as the Grand Epicure is presented in two rows of five Cigars.
The Hoyo de Monterrey Grand Epicure, is a fifty five ring gauge, by thirteen centimetres in length. This will make the Grand Epicure a thicker, longer version of the Epicure No. 2. Therefore the Grand Epicure will share the same dimensions as the Romeo y Julieta Wide Churchill.
The Cigar features a special "Double Band". This band is similar to the one found on the Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure de Luxe, 2012 La Casa Del Habanos release.
The Romeo de Luxe was the last of the three 2013 Limited Editions to be released, at the tail end of October 2013.
When the promotional images came out for the Romeo de Luxe, the images depicated two types of boxes, a dress box and a varnished semi-boite nature version. However, the varnished version was the final released version.
The Serie D'Oro No. 2 is the first Edition Limiteda released under the Punch marquee.
Released in early August 2013, the Punch Serie D'Oro No. 2 made it's debut first in the UK, with the major retailers offering the Cigar for sale, with Switzerland following a few days later.
